Yin Yoga- Yoga University of FL
June 21 @ 7:15 pm - 8:15 pm
Yin Yoga is a very simple practice. We settle into an asana for 3-7 minutes and slowly relax our muscles to allow the deeper drier tissues–the connective tissues that wrap our muscles and make up our joint capsules–to be safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened.
The alignment rules of the postures are also simple, but more importantly, they are functional and organic: We listen to our bodies and lead ourselves into the shape that follows the natural contours of our spine, pelvis, and hips.
Level 1 classes are designed for those who have had very little or no previous exposure to yoga but are eager to learn and start experiencing the amazing benefits of a yoga practice. This level is appropriate for those with current health/physical concerns, those who are recovering from an injury or those who are feeling low on energy. Expect to do a slower-paced class with more rest and relaxation offered than in our other class levels. The teacher may begin to introduce more challenging poses as the student is ready. Modifications will be offered throughout the class.
